Structura 

(’15—Now)

This is a modular typeface Structura. It is based on six modules, all of which were laser-cut from acrylic plastic. Using those elements, I built up a type-specimen employing a Russian pangram, and illustrated the written text. Apart from textual messages, Structura allows to create icons, signs, patterns and even physical 3D-objects (e.g. I have a collection of ceramic vessels based on Structura)
